Nice place. We dined during Thanksgiving evening and it was't too crowded and the atmosphere was good. The food was very good. We had pizza, steak filet and salmon and everything was delicious. The only comment I have is about their gluten free option. They don't have any. When I asked the waiter about it, he looked at me puzzled like this was the first time anyone is asking about this... In our days, I would have expect any restaurant that respect itself to have at least some GF options.

Good restaurant with good food. They seem a bit understaffed at the moment but who isn’t? The branzino was excellent and tiramisu was great. Will be back.

We went on Saturday night and the place was packed. There were several mistakes made by our server. We did not get silverware when we sat at our table and when our appetizer arrived I reminded the server we still needed silverware. We waited another 5 minutes staring at our large meatball unable to eat it. I ended up getting out of my seat and going to the other side of the restaurant to find our waiter and have him get us silverware. Then we finally started eating the cooled off appetizer and our food arrived. I asked for another drink while eating since I ran out and it never came. We also asked for water when ordering our drinks and apps and never got it. When our drinks ran out we had nothing to wash down the food with so we stopped eating. At that point it was too late. We felt like VUP's since everyone around us seemed to be getting attention and served properly. However the food was amazing!

The food was only ordinary. The atmosphere was good. The bread they brought to the table was awful--saltless pizza dough. It was good enough but I expected something more yummy.

They need to decide whether they’re a restaurant or a club. There was loud music playing and flashing lights, sitting facing the wall where the lights were aimed was incredibly distracting.

The restaurant was packed as expected. We were celebrating my friend’s bachelorette party & everyone enjoyed their meal. The only downside is that we has to abruptly end our evening after dinner since the bride overheated several times in the restaurant. Yes it was very cold outside, but they overcompensated with the heat inside.

It was a very busy Saturday night and there was a large crowd around the check in podium outside. But the staff handled it very well and we were shown to our table within 10 minutes of our reservation which I think was very good considering the large crowd. Once inside the staff did a good job of being attentive despite a very busy night and there was a good vibe thanks to the music.

Terrible service! Servers and staff not wearing masks! Advised server of food allergy and he still brought food with the ingredient.

Will not return, ever! Il Canale (next door) is superior to this place, but they did not have open reservations, unfortunately.

The food was AMAZING. But the service and knowledge of the menu and technology was horrible. I wish I could bare it again to go back because everything tasted wonderful. But honestly, I’d never want to be treated the way I was again.

Lively spot in Georgetown, attracts a younger crowd, but really very good for all ages. Menu was varied enough for our large group and the service was more than satisfactory. Servers did a very good job of accommodating diners during a very busy night.

Flavio’s was amazing! We sat at the bar to get happy hour. Red the bar manager was the best bar tender we have ever met, we had an amazing time with him. The food was amazing and the drinks were great. Probably one of my top 5 happy hour places in DC!

The ambiance is cute. The server was terrible. She was no help in giving us options as it was our first time and rarely came to check on us. The food was bland. We ordered the seafood pasta and it just didn't have enough flavor.

Entrees came out at the same time as salads..one person in our party ordered a pizza that came out After the rest of our party had finished their entrees. No apology or offer to discount pizza. Leaving the next morning so we couldn’t take pizza with us .

Well run casual Italian restaurant. The menu is not large, but what we ordered was prepared well and quite good. Prices are fair and if you are as lucky as we were with the weather, the outside seating added a lot to the evening.
